#612: Maruchan Yakisoba Spicy Chicken Flavor Homestyle Japanese Noodles

Here’s one that we got at a northern Oregon Chevron of all places. Man, I’m still jonesin’ to try the Beef Taco and Jalapeno Cheddar flavors!!!

Here’s the back of the packaging (click image to enlarge)…

Packet one: the vegetables!

See, you put em in like this under the noods and then shake it from side to side a little.

After you add a cup of water and microwave for 4 minutes and letting it all sit for a minute, you get this packet out of your packet holster.

You dump it atop the noodles and stir like crazy. Kinda funky looking there.

Added just a hint over a cup of water too so I don’t know what the issue was. The flavor is salty and spicy and rather artificial. The real star here are the veggies – there’s a ton of them! The problem is that it started out somewhat good but as it cooled it got stickier and stickier to the point of being a blob of noodles. I didn’t like it at all. 1.75 out of 5.0 stars.. Find it here.

Rad groove…

…and they clamped like lidlocks on mine eyes!


  1. Trust me, you won’t enjoy the Beef Taco noodles either, they all have the same problem as this stuff, they get all goopy and inedible after a while, and the flavor just hits you like a Mike Tyson power punch, in a bad way. The whole Yakisoba line seems to be pretty bad, really.
